Most people are aware of the fact that their skin requires collagen for a healthy, youthful appearance. What many may not realize is that collagen production is not a guarantee. With age, stress, and numerous other factors come changes in the way the body operates. As these changes occur, collagen stores in the tissue beneath the skin become depleted, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and other concerns. If you have noticed the signs of age creeping onto your face, visit Dr. J's Elegant Reflections Med Spa for solutions designed around your needs.
One of the most recognized anti-aging solutions is to soften lines on the face with dermal fillers. Today, we have several products with which we can help patients regain the volume that is lost with age. A number of the fillers commonly used are based on restoring fullness with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. The Radiesse filler, available in our La Mesa & Temecula, CA practice, is slightly different. With a base of tiny calcium beads, Radiesse continually encourages the production of new collagen after immediately diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Many patients who choose this product enjoy results that last from six months to two years.
Radiesse provide both immediate and lasting benefits, including:
- An allover lifting effect across the entire face
- Immediately improved facial volume, with more youthful contouring
- Younger looking skin on the face or hands
- Fuller, more defined lips
- Decrease in the appearance of nasolabial folds between the nose and the mouth, as well as marionette lines, which run from the mouth to the chin
- Decrease in puffiness beneath the eyes
- Safe, effective treatment for a more vibrant you!
Radiesse is a biocompatible filler that has safely and effectively helped millions of men and women feel better about their appearance. After a short treatment session, side effects are typically minimal, including only slight redness and swelling in the area injections have taken place. These side effects will diminish over the course of a few days, if not sooner. Using gentle, precision technique, Dr. Emery minimizes discomfort. Most patients feel only a slight pinprick sensation with each injection. Radiesse is so mild that many of our patients receive treatment on their lunch hour, returning to their normal activities without complication.
We all deserve to feel confident in our own skin. The careful application of Radiesse can allow you to say hello to a younger, more vibrant version of yourself while maintaining a completely natural appearance.

Mechanism of Action
RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a aqueous gel carrier.
Once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen.
Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your patient's own natural collagen.
